Iraq War Veteran to Run for Senate

October 25, 2005|From Times Wire Reports

Paul Hackett, a Democratic veteran of the Iraq war who narrowly lost a special election in a heavily Republican congressional district in August, made his official entry into a U.S. Senate race.

He faces a tough Democratic primary with Rep. Sherrod Brown in the race for the nomination to challenge second-term Republican incumbent Mike DeWine next year.

Hackett, a Marine reservist, was defeated in the congressional race by Jean Schmidt, a former GOP state legislator.
